Church People

What do you do when you’re out in the every-day world and you see someone in need? Do you avoid them, do you judge them, or do you help them in some way?

“Jesus replied with a story: “A Jewish man was traveling from Jerusalem down to Jericho, and he was attacked by bandits. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him up, and left him half dead beside the road. “By chance a priest came along. But when he saw the man lying there, he crossed to the other side of the road and passed him by. A Temple assistant walked over and looked at him lying there, but he also passed by on the other side. “Then a despised Samaritan came along, and when he saw the man, he felt compassion for him. Going over to him, the Samaritan soothed his wounds with olive oil and wine and bandaged them. Then he put the man on his own donkey and took him to an inn, where he took care of him.” Luke‬ ‭10‬:‭30‬-‭34‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Outsiders see “Church people” as hypocrites because so many of us are like the church leaders in this parable, at least some of the time. One thing Jesus never did was turn away from pain or neediness, and we are supposed to be following His example. @drop_the_stones #wwjd #BEthechurch #theywillknowusbyourlove #shalom #onespiritonechurch #yourjourneytobeingwhole
